These neat little stickers act like organ donor cards for intellectual property. In the event of your death if you sign and stick one of these on your driver’s license and it should act to make all of your intellectual property public domain.

 

What is Intellectual property?  It is a term referring to a number of distinct types of creations of the mind for which property rights are recognized—and the corresponding fields of law. Under intellectual property law, owners are granted certain exclusive rights to a variety of intangible assets, such as musical, literary, and artistic works; discoveries and inventions; and words, phrases, symbols, and designs.

These stickers were created by Artist Evan Roth and although we aren’t sure if they are a valid way of giving the public use of your intellectual property when you pass on. The current wait period is 70 years after your death before it becomes public domain.

 

Learn Something Fun: Even domains are under intellectual property, but sometimes even the most innocent of domains can turn out not so innocent.
